Time Out says

This living green museum is home to thousands of species of flora, tranquil gardens and beautiful plant displays, spanning 56 hectares. The more than 20,000 plants growing in the garden represent approximately 5000 species from around the world.

Explore the Scented Garden, Bonsai House, Rainforest (which has the largest collection of Australian native rainforest trees in the world) and a geodesic dome filled with exotic and tropical flowers and plants.  

Take some time out to relax or meditate within the Japanese Garden, which was designed by one of Japan's leading landscape architects, the late Kenzo Ogata. The Arid Zone and Cactus House is replete with succulents in a rainbow of soft colours. Stargaze at the Cosmic Skydome Planetarium and explore more than 850,000 species of plants, fungi, algae and animals at the Queensland Herbarium. The summit lookout offers panoramic views of the city.

There are free guided mini bus tours to give you an overview of the gardens, as well as free guided walks daily. Want to adventure on your own? There are also self-guided walks including an Aboriginal plant trail, which takes you through the Yuggera land and explores the plants used by Indigenous communities.

The garden is also a space for community involvement, with free twilight yoga classes, fitness boot camps, hands-on workshops, story time for little ones, art classes and photography walks.
